Marinas versus anchorages/shore ties
I suppose I was a little vague about my request for safe haven in the Bahamas. Just like in Texas, when a potential major blow was coming, my dockmates and I were ready to leave a floating dock in order to 3-point anchor in a protected cove, I agree that a "marina" may not be the best refuge. Let me rephrase the request to a "hurricane hole" if you will and I think the possibilities may increase. I AM looking for a place that I can work the boat (41 ft, 5'8" draft) into and send numerous lines to mangrove tree trunks in addition to anchors. It sounds like there are a number of places that may fit the description.
Of more interest, however, would be the expected storm surge with a given category of storm, i.e. what would you expect storm surge flooding to be in Marsh Harbor in a category three storm?
